Assault from Rob Zombie
Well, ole Rob has still got it. He just keeps pumping out CD after CD. R. Zombie's growl is very distinct and any Zombie fan can peg him in an instant! Rob Zombie appears to be trying to free his self of the "industrial/techno" label that a lot of the music industry has given his style of music. This CD rather sounds a lot more like a mix of new age hard rock meshed with Sabbath style riffs of the 70's. He has definitely taken this CD in a new direction and Rob has not disappointed, once again.
I like this album, but I don't love this album. I bought it for 'Foxy, Foxy'. I do like the fact that it isn't as heavy as some other White Zombie stuff (sometimes, you can actually understand what he saying). I would like to know where the title "Educated Horses" came from. Basically, I like the "House of 1,000 Corpses" soundtrack which was mainly songs Rob Zombie wrote for the film and I was sorta hoping this album might be similar, but actually, the only song "The Devil's Rejects" (which is a reject from movies soundtrack) is the only song that sounds anything like the "House of 1,000 Corpses" soundtrack. But there are still good songs to be heard. "Let it All Bleed" has a pretty good riff in it. "Foxy, Foxy" is catchy and Sherri Moon does a pretty good job of dancing to it in the video. There's a few more songs which are okay. Basically, I think it's good for the price I paid. Full price would have been a disappointment.Read full review
Classic Rob Zombie in action!
Anyone who is a fan of Rob Zombie will love this album. The songs rate up there with his hits "Dragula" and "Living Dead Girl." This album does not disappoint, and like I said, if you are a Rob Zombie fan, this album absolutely belongs in your collection. If you are unfamiliar with Rob Zombie but you love hard-hitting rock that makes you want to dance, this album's throbbing beats and awesome vocals will get you on your feet!
Foxy Foxy, what a cool song.
Good CD. Hellbilly Deluxe is better. Foxy Foxy is a great song. I replayed that song 4 or 5 times every day for 2 weeks.
The king of all shock rock never disappoints!
Rob Zombie is the king of all shock rock next to Marilyn Manson. Neither one of them ever disappoints at all. Educated Horses was another great album by a great artist. I would recommend it for any new fan. Zombie definately brings it and you know he will continue too!
